It’s me: back with another list of soundtracks-you-should-listen-to.
I hope you all aren’t too disappointed that I haven’t actually been “writing” on here lately. I really wish I had a “deeper” post to share with you all. Something that I’ve been thinking about, or some insight, whatever. Truth is, I have been thinking about a lot of things, but I just can’t get the writing to say what I want it to say. It keeps getting tangled up, like when you don’t wash your shoelaces by themselves and they get all wrapped and knotted around your shirts.
Let’s get into soundtracks now.
And Then There Were None
I found this one while browsing Spotify for the Poldark soundtrack and idk Spotify decided that I might like other soundtracks that star Aiden Turner. Turns out, I did. ATTWN is this mixture of intense creepiness and horror – but it’s awesome and I love it. I think we can expect great things from Stewart Earl in the future.
to start, listen to: the entire thing
Into the West
I love this one for it’s Western/Folk/Native sound. The flutes and drums and guitar – well, they’re just gorgeous together. Give a listen, and maybe then, go watch the miniseries (I know I want to).
to start, listen to: Buffalo Run, Gathering of Nations, Hunting the Buffalo, Into the West, Much to Learn from Each Other, Photography, Rations, The Mother Lode, The Sand Creek Massacre, Wheeler Reunion 1890
Honestly, guys. this soundtrack. I’m so obsessed with it. I saw the movie earlier this year, and wow okay, it’s really good.
to start, listen to: Tobin Comes Home, Guy Left His Lunch, Matobo, Zuwanie Arrives at the UN, Silvia Showers, Drowning Man, End Credits – if you want all the best tracks, otherwise listen to the entire thing without stopping.
*shhh, I’m actually listening
to it while I write this post.
I didn’t think I’d like this one much, and it’s not my favorite Newton Howard score, but it’s still pretty awesome.
Little Brother and I fell for this one after listening to the Main Titles. It’s just epic, classic James Newton Howard style – what else matters, right?
to start, listen to: Main Titles, Shelter in the Storm, The Restored United States
